Guide (6/10)



  1. As far as I know none of the “ice fishing” suits are coast guard approved. Only the Mustang survival suit is. I have the Striker Ice suit and it’s very warm and comfortable. Never tested it’s floating ability though. I’ve seen videos of it floating well.
  2. Anyone know if Pete still guides in the Kawarthas? I think he was working with Handlebarz but I think that fizzled off (I could be wrong), just trying to find his contact info. Thanks:
  3. Brechin is a long ways from cooks bay though. I went out of PB and the ice was good 8-10” good black ice. Lots of huts out. caught zero fish though. First time ever being skunked on simcoe . I wasn’t brave enough to venture to far from the travelled areas though. i felt the ice move below me and almost knocked me over. It was the weirdest feeling. I’ve never had that ever happen before. It was actually kind of scary. Because you know somewhere there’s now a pressure crack that wasn’t there.
  4. I’ve caught lots of Muskies (not as many as you that’s for sure lol), but I’ve never caught a single one on black orange and I ALWAYS throw a black orange lure but it never catches. I fish Kawarthas and natural lutes just work better for me. sometimes maybe it’s just confidence. But I do well with “match the hatch”. And I go darker or brighter depending on sun and waves. More natural the calmer and brighter is; brighter the windier and cloudier it is.
  5. Port bolster was decent ice. I think Tim is near Beaverton? Heard the ice is okay up there but more sketchy spots
  6. I couldn’t believe the amount of sleds out on the lake this weekend.
  7. Well I was never able to find anything lol. Now I wait until spring and hope for the best.
  8. Those northern muskoka lakes usually freeze up late, and its been mild. Check the satellite views and see. https://worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov/?v=-80.89900582963331,44.028951230569994,-77.78746108182732,45.60633155411053&t=2020-12-29-T08%3A00%3A00Z looks wide open to me. along with simcoe and the other Muskoka lakes.
  9. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01DR90MM6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Dewalt DCD996B. Brushless 20v. I use this with an 8" swede bore, and cut holes all day. I have a 6AH battery that runs for days. It cuts holes like a knife in butter.
  10. As quickly as the ice formed it went away. The last day of mild weather and rain melted all the ice. Chemong is all wide open zero ice now.
  11. The shorelines frozen, the middle it open. It’s been above 0* last several days. South end has ice, but it be dangerous.
  12. I thought the same thing! Lol where is he seeing 5”, the. I saw 2007
  13. Well it all froze last night with -10 temps. Now its frozen as far as I can see
  14. Must not have lasted long, because its open water as far as I can see on Chemong.
  15. Wow thanks, I now have a bill on my credit card hahaha. I cant pass on that.
